Prices are getting better but I've seen some reviews about fire hazards on other discount items at Newegg recently that scare me (Biostar motherboards), and now this XFX video card:
Pros: Very good performance Cons: Card literally started smoking due to a possible capacitor failure. Luckily I was at the pc when it happened. No other components were damaged but could have been extremely dangerous.
Currently in RMA and will update review based on that process.
I'd take even a 7870 over a 660Ti. 660Ti doesn't scale well above 1080P or overclock very well. A 7870 offers about the same 1080P performance when you overclock it. A 7950 can do dual monitor 1080P gaming. Toms Hardware is the only fair review of the 660Ti, other nvidia-biased reviews use factory-OC models and FXAA (blurro-vision) instead of true MSAA, which is where the 7870 or 7950 will do very well. The 660Ti is very bandwidth starved.
